Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini praised the response of his players after they edged out Arsenal to get back to winning ways.

David Silva struck the only goal as City won a pulsating clash at the Etihad Stadium to return to the top of the Barclays Premier League. Mancini felt his players had come through a test of nerve after losing their unbeaten record at Chelsea on Monday and being knocked off the summit by Manchester United earlier on Sunday afternoon.

Mancini said: "I think we deserved to win this game. We had half a chance and Silva scored an important goal. We are on the top again. I am delighted for this because after Chelsea it was really important to beat Arsenal and go again to the top of the table, also because Arsenal are a really strong team at this moment."
